November 7, 2017 — Intelerad Medical Systems recently announced the expansion of its cloud-based solution suite. The expansion includes an Imaging Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering that provides a complete, cloud-based imaging platform.
To reduce healthcare organizations’ costs, the latest version of the cloud imaging platform allows Intelerad clients to offload information technology (IT) management, thereby reducing the need for hefty capital investment in IT infrastructure and personnel. Instead, Intelerad will design, procure and maintain on-site hardware, storage infrastructure and security. All infrastructure fees are included in the fee-per-study model.
In terms of scalability, the cloud IaaS solution provides worry-free business continuity and flexible growth by instantly scaling to meet real-time performance and storage needs. Additionally, the solution maintains 99.99 percent uptime, and stores client data across multiple sites to ensure business continuity and disaster recovery. Furthermore, the platform uses advanced security measures to ensure all patient healthcare information is protected.
Among the Intelerad clients moving their IT infrastructure to the cloud is Aris Radiology, a rapidly-growing organization that provides radiology services to more than 300 hospitals and health systems nationwide.
“With Intelerad’s cloud-based imaging platform, we are gaining a solution that simplifies the management of IT infrastructure, so we can focus on our core business,” said Shannon Shirk, chief information officer of Aris Radiology. “In addition to being highly scalable and robust, the solution also allows radiologists to leverage an efficient workflow and ensure the highest levels of patient care.”
